Mine is the Pao cf palustris My puffer trio of 1 Male 2 Female produces however many eggs are in this cave every 14 days or so. With 50 to 75 makimg it to pulling size once the male removes any bad ones. When I choose to pull a portion of eggs out to breeder boxes I could end up with approximately 50 per new fry every month easily. Its more than I expected going in. Anyone else have other species that really fire off for them in numbers that you didnt expect to achieve initially? Which was the most surprising success? Im at the point with these guys where I can make the 50 puffers a month fairly easily if I had the space and chose to do so.
The Pao palustris fry , which are going strong are still just living in a Ziss breeder box in the colony tank 75 gallons. Photo is day 9, this morning, eating live bby brine the orange flecks are brine shrimp for size perspective. What is everyones view on when is the right time to move them from the Ziss breeder box to a grow out tank in the rack system? Once they start getting territorial ? Once i find more fry? ....?
